Comments on: Mobile Voice Control Available for Other Sprint Treos

A primary component of the new Treo 755p’s enhanced software bundle in comparison to its predecessors is the “Mobile Voice Control” software developed by Nuance and included by Sprint.

A check of the Nuance web site now reveals that this application is now available for a wide variety of smartphones, including both Palm OS and Windows Mobile-based Treos. In addition to the newly-released 755p, Nuance’s MVC program is listed as being compatible with the Treo 700wx, 700p, and 680. Additional supported platforms are a large range of RIM Blackberry models and the Motorola Q and PPC 6700 WM-powered devices.

Dead on arrival

While this service supposedly does more than just voice dialing, most of those extras seem like the sort of thing you'd try once for the novelty, and never use again. Good quality general purpose voice recognition software for desktop systems has been available for over a decade, but remains a niche market.

OTOH, the focused application of voice dialing is genuinely useful, so much so that it's included on many low end cell phones. No way I'm going to pay $72 per year for a feature comes bundled on a free phone.

Other than Sprint

If this is a Nuance product that why is it not available on other carriers besides Sprint. I use Cingular and would be interested in running this app on my 650.

I just emailed them and here is their response:

As long as the phone is listed on our website it will work. We are contractually obligated to Support Only Sprint/Nextel devices but it works with other carriers including Verizon.


Nuance VoiceControl

Hopes this helps.

I guess we'll have to change "science fiction" to plain old "science"...
